General description

C24 Ceramide has long acyl chain length of 24 carbon units.


C24 Ceramide (d18:1/24:0) has been used:
  • in the generation of small unilamellar vesicles
  • as an internal standard in liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry for ceramide quantification from rat samples
  • to test its effect on mitochondrial stress response in worms

Biochem/physiol Actions

C24 ceramide induces mitochondrial stress response. Its levels are depleted in coronary artery disease (CAD). However, elevated ceramide levels is observed in Alzheimer′s disease. C24 is synthesized during stress. It mediates spontaneous neutrophil death.

Neutrophils rapidly undergo spontaneous apoptosis following their release from the bone marrow. Although central to leukocyte homeostasis, the mechanisms that regulate neutrophil apoptosis remain poorly understood. We show here that apoptosis of cultured neutrophils is preceded by a substantial increase
